It's hard to improve on a bowl of fresh, juicy summer berries, though a dollop of liqueur-scented crème fraîche does "gild the lily" with elegance and sophistication. Serve this on a hot summer day.
6 cups mixed berries, such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries
3 tablespoon sugar, divided, or to taste
¾ cup (6 ounces) crème fraîche
2 tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Orange zest and sprigs of fresh mint for garnish
Stir the berries with 1 tablespoon of the sugar in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust the sweetness.
Whisk together the crème fraîche, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, liqueur, and vanilla in a small bowl.
Spoon the berries into individual dessert bowls and top with the crème fraîche mixture. Garnish with a sprinkling of orange zest and mint sprigs.
